Abstract:

Confusion about the dates of publication for Ipomoea muricata (L.) Jacq. and I. muricata Cav. has resulted in both names being set aside in favour of later names proposed for these two distinct taxa. Investigation of the publication date for Jacquin's Plantae Rariorum Horti Caesari Schoenbrunnensis clarifies the nomenclature for these two tropical morning glories. Ipomoea muricata (L.) Jacq. is the earlier name, and it is herein reinstated for the plant recently called I. turbinata Lagasca by some authors. Ipomoea capillacea (Kunth) G. Don is the correct name for I. muricata Cav.
